French miner Eramet says halted all operations in Gabon
PARIS, Aug 30 (Reuters) - French miner Eramet , which owns the Comilog manganese minit unit in Gabon, said on Wednesday it had halted all operations in the country following overnight events. "From this morning all Comilog and Setrag operations have been halted and train transport suspended," an Eramet spokesperson told Reuters. A group of senior Gabonese military officers appeared on television in the early hours of Wednesday and said they had taken power, after the state election body announced President Ali Bongo had won a third term.
